I have been trying to get this MSI command to work through Kace with no avail.  The MSI ask you to select a language and other components to install.  I am sure that this is what the issue is.  One time I ran the script, it started but dropped off in the back ground.  I ran a log parameter and it seems to possibly be a UAC issue.  I am a Jr. Tech with not much scripting experience. This was my last attempt and I recieved these error messages from Kace.  Again looks like a UAC problem.  I also tried to run the script as a local administrator.  Still no luck

  • Thanks I was able to get it to work on a local computer but for some reason it is not working on Kace. There error logs report a user problem, changed the user, to no avail. I'll keep working on it.

Whoa! Thats a lot of prams - too many in fact.

Also, /a is for a adminstrative install, unpacks it so you can patch it etc, you wont be doing this im guessing.



Try this

msiexec /i Nameof.MSI ALLUSERS=1 /qb /l*vx %systemroot%\logs\Nameof.Log


/qb so you can see the UI, you can change this to /qn for no UI later (after testing).

Logs will be in Windows\Logs, make sure the path exisits or it will bomb out.



  1. Start by testing the cmd out in a cmd window, of course run this with elevated permissions.
  2. Once you know the cmd is ok, you can whack it into KACE

If you can run the MSI manually, press Enter (and nothing else) at each screen and the install behaves as you wish, your install command should work and probably an issue within Kace.  But if the MSI is asking you questions (pick 'A' or 'B', enter your licesne key, etc.), you need to provide answers which is done by a transform file.
